9th Annual Hike for the Homeless at Edwin Warner - benefits Safe Haven

We are Hiking for the Homeless on November 2 at Edwin Warner Park. Join the Nashville Hiking Meetup team for the 9th Annual Hike for the Homeless benefiting Safe Haven Family Shelter. This hike is a Nashville favorite for its heavy dose of outdoor time, friends, family, food and fun. The event includes hiking on two paved trails (2.2 and 3.1 miles), a complimentary lunch, a climbing wall, live music and children's activities. The hike will take place at Edwin Warner Park picnic shelters 9 and 11 on Saturday, November 2, 2013. Registration begins at 9 a.m., with hikers hitting the trail at 10 am. There is no entry fee for the Hike, but they are encouraging each team to raise money. Each person who donates at least $25 will get a Hike for the Homeless t-shirt. If you cannot join us for the Hike on November 2, you can still be there in spirit by making a donation to support our team. Be sure to encourage your coworkers, friends and family to sign up for our team and/or make a donation to support our team. Here is the Nashville Hiking Meetup Team link to sign up and/or to make a donation: http://hike4homeless.kintera.org/NashvilleHikingMeetup

Dogs are very welcomed. They have dog bandanas while supplies last! 

Lisa Cloyd has been gracious enough to be our volunteer point person. Everyone check in at registration and then meet Lisa by the Hike for the Homeless banner which is near the hike start line. She'll be wearing her olive green NHM ball cap!

    Thank you to everyone who came out and/or donated! It was a great day and a great cause! The Nashville Hiking Meetup has a team each year for the Hike for the Homeless. Let me know if anyone is interested in helping with the planning, volunteering or may want to be the team lead for next year's team. You all rock!

    Would anyone like to be the point person for NHM on this event? All you would need to do is be there a little early and gather the NHM hikers. Any takers?

    I signed up to be a volunteer at the food table this time. I hike here all of the time. So I expect to see some of my MeetUp friends there.

    I joined the team and made a donation. The numbers on the page don't show that I joined nor a donation was made...odd, I hope it shows up shortly.

      Hi Lisa. I will check on this-- and let you know. Do you know for sure that your donation went through-- or do you think the whole registration did not go through?

      October 28, 2013

    • Lisa C.

      It went through, I have the receipt for my donation.

    Can I bring a dog?

    • Stacy N.

      Yes, definitely! The event is very dog friendly. They have water and dog snacks there and even give away hike4homeless bandanas (while supplies last) to the dogs.

    Anyone know this trail? I am fairly new into hiking and I don't own any good boots, only thing I have is steel toe boots, which are somewhat comfortable but not the best. Will tennis shoes suffice for these trails? Also, if I donate, who/what/when/where will distribute the t-shirts?

    October 27, 2013

    • Lisa C.

      According to the Tennessean both trails are paved. I wear tennis shoes on the paved trails there.
      I am not positive but I assume t-shirts will be picked up at registration the morning of the hike. Hope this helps

      Hi Curtis! Lisa is correct both trails are paved. Tennis shoes are perfect. Everyone who donates $25 or more will get a hike t-shirt. When you check in at registration, you will be given a ticket to take to the t-shirt tent to pick it up. See you Saturday!

    Hi everyone! Wanted to check in to say that both trails are paved. The event is family and dog friendly. In addition to the hike, there is live salsa music, climbing wall, complimentary lunch and children's activities. There is no entry fee or min. donation, but we are raising money for homeless families with children. Everyone who donates $25 or more will get a hike t-shirt. If you haven't already done so, please also register on the hike website for our team: http://hike4homeless.kintera.or...­. Click the blue hyper link: Join our team. This is important as they require a waiver to be signed-- and also gives you the opp to make a donation. On Nov. 2, checkin/registration begins at 9 a.m. with the hike starting at 10 a.m. When you arrive, check in under my name as the team captain: Stacy Nunnally or our team name, Nashville Hiking Meetup. Someone should pick up our team sign there too and maybe stand off to the side so everyone can gather.

    Hi Aaron- both groups have teams. People can join one or the others-- the money all goes to the same place-- and we can all hike together!

  • Aaron P

    Perhaps a joint venture with the Tennessee Hiking Group for this?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
